Candice Gaukel Andrews

A multiple award-winning author and writer specializing in nature-travel topics and environmental issues, Candice has traveled around the world, from the Arctic Circle to Antarctica, and from New Zealand to Scotland’s far northern, remote regions. Her assignments have been equally diverse, from covering Alaska’s Yukon Quest dogsled race to writing a history of the Galapagos Islands to describing and photographing the national snow-sculpting competition in Wisconsin, her birth state.

A former scriptwriter for Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, California, Candice gave up the big city life to return to her roots in the Heartland. Recently, she made the cross-country move to Oregon and is looking forward to the next chapter: explorations in the Pacific Northwest.

Candice’s books include Travel Wild Wisconsin (University of Wisconsin Press, 2013), Beyond the Trees: Stories of Wisconsin Forests (Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2011), The Minnesota Almanac (Trails Books, 2008), and Great Wisconsin Winter Weekends (Trails Books, 2006). Her work has appeared in several national and international publications, such as The Huffington Post and Outside Magazine Online. She is a web columnist for several eco-publications, such as the Adventure Collection’s blog and Good Nature Travel; and she is the editor of An Adventurous Nature: Tales from Natural Habitat Adventures, a collection of worldwide adventure stories.
